The Beatles fly to the Bahamas to film Help!

The Beatles left London Airport on a chartered flight to the Bahamas to begin filming their second feature film Help!

Their Boeing 707 was seen off by 1,400 fans. Also aboard the flight was their co-star Eleanor Bron.

The flight stopped in New York to refuel, but The Beatles' party did not leave the aeroplane, although US Customs and Immigration wanted them to pass through customs.

Upon their arrival in the Bahamas they held a swiftly-organised press conference at the airport. They then checked in to their suites at the Balmoral Club near Cable Beach, Nassau, and later enjoyed a midnight swim in the ocean.
